What a hoot you have to do this if you are in Darwin

See the crocodiles leap out of the water as well as the big ones lying on the bank. Its a short and informative tour that had the kids loving being scared of crocodiles.

We where there late October at the end of the season, the water and weather are a bit warm. And the crocs are a bit lazy. We had a nice trip and did se some crocs, but not as many and as big as expected :( Did a cruise 13 years ago, that was better, but things change.

A great way to experience the amazing power of these ancient animals. The stealth with which they approach is amazing. You may also see a tustle and retreat if territory is threatened. Guides know their stuff and are able to entertain with facts and humour. An easy drive from Darwin. A stop at Wetlands lookout on the way is worthwhile.

Crocodile viewing close up, see the big crocodiles on the Adelaide River Cruises, a must do for interstate and overseas visitors alike. Best early on weekdays, but all days fine for the cruise trip. Meet Big Northern Territory Salt Water Crocodiles in their home environment. Last time I went I saw nests with the young, and mothers keeping close by... More

As locals we make a point of taking all our visitors on this must see attraction. The guides are informative, experienced and true Territorians (sense of humour) and the crocs are up front and personal!! You ain't seen a croc unless you see them in their natural environment to appreciate how bloody big they actually are what amazing animals they... More

My best friend flew up from Melbourne so me and a mate took this cruise. The world famous goliath Croc "Brutus" had gone AWOL for weeks so our guide the (hilarious and highly educational) Harry warned us we probably wouldn't see him. We saw many smaller crocs and we're highly entertained while harry fed them while also tossing buffalo meat... More

We were fortunate enough to be the only ones on the boat. It was the start of the wet season and Harry and co were about to pack up and leave until May of 2017. Harry is a great guide. He was engaging and knew the area well as the animals. As a bonus we even got to meet Brutus,... More

Dominator was truly amazing. The sheer size of the animal was a site to see. The tour guide was outstanding, informative and professional. Value for money and a true Australian feel to the tour. No fancy boats, gift shops just massive crocs!

It's an easy drive from Darwin to get here. It's quite amazing to see the crocodiles and you can get some great photos. The cruise is only an hour but it goes quickly. Worth doing.
